They visit locations where important films and works of game art were created. As they drive through the digital city, they discuss question of why normality in video games with the audience, focu on the hyperreal and how this can be used or misused artistically. Afterwards, we will sit down in the digital cinema and watch the films Swatted (I.J. Chandoutis, 2018) and How to Disappear (Total Refusal, 2020).
